March 31, 2021 Bletchley Park Code Breaker Novel ‘The Rose Code’ By Kate Quinn Being Adapted For TV By Black Bear Pictures
Saddly I’m near the end of the book and all I can thinks is…this must be made into a movie or multi-part series! Thank goodness someone had the same thought. Can’t wait. Writers— don’t mess up the dialogue! And cast well—-please.
I agree! I am near the end of the book and I kept thinking “this should be made into a series”
I am almost at the end of this wonderful story. I had no idea these code breakers were really there during the war. My mother was a nurse in London during the war and I heard some stories but not enough. Would LOVE to see this in a movie or series. Looking forward to it!
This would be an incredible series. Absolutely loved the book!
I just finished the book and when I saw that it’s being made into an episodic series I was ecstatic!!!!! Loved, loved, loved the story!!!! Please stick to the book when adapting it.
Looking forward to this production!
Has the Rose Code been adapted for tv yet?
it’s been optioned but honestly it usually takes a few years at minimum after the book is released for an adaptation to be made
This is going to make a great series. Loved the book. Casting it well will make it all the better. Loved the romance and intrigue.
A hard to put down book! I hope it gets made into a movie for all to enjoy!
I gobble up every story about WW2 code breakers and spies I can find—especially female narratives. The Bletchley Circle and The Imitation Game were among my first, and The Rose Code is my latest. The audiobook soon had me vividly picturing its main characters—Osla, Mab, and Beth—thanks to Kate Quinn’s brilliant writing and Saskia Maarleveld’s exceptional narration. Imagine my delight at learning a mini series is being developed. I have no doubt it will be simply “topping”!
I am in the middle of the novel and I am truly in love with all the characters.
Re its adaptation into a movie or otherwise, please find the right voices/actors to express all that is so wonderfully written by the author. Thank you!
I just finished the book. This has all the makings of a fantastic movie or TV series. Today is my book club meeting and I’m sure everyone will agree. Please pick the cast carefully!
So excited about this marvelous story to be made into a movie. Please stay as true to the storyline as possible.
Just finished the book – loved it – draws you into the times. First thing I said to my husband was “they should make a film about this book”!!!!
I enjoyed “The Rose Code”. But I just finished reading “the Alice Network “. This held my interest to the very last page. Excellent read!! Make this one a movie. My son can play Finn with the Scottish accent. Ryan Wesley Gilreath. But regardless I would love to see this as a movie too.
This is a terrific book and needs reading a few times to get all the details and nuances. Just finished discussing it at my Book Club yesterday and felt the book needed to go to screen but needed a mini series rather than a movie to cover it well. Also discussed who should be cast but will wait to see who is chosen. Loved other series made by this company.
